You’ve shown that you care about our community and our schools.


Thank you moms and dads and kids.

Thank you teachers and staff.

Thank you PTAs and administrators.

Thank you parents and grandparents and passionate citizens of San Mateo and Foster City and beyond.

Over 500 of you sent out over 10,000 postcards to the active voters in support of Measure V (the parcel tax to support our elementary and middle schools), and it PASSED!

You volunteered your time.

You hand wrote each and every postcard.

You stamped them.

You mailed them.

Your words made a difference in our community.

Some of you went even further.

You held postcard parties.

You had postcard play dates.

You pulled in your friends and families.

You pulled in your school.

You even included your kids in the activity of writing postcards!

You are awesome!

We want to extend a special THANK YOU to the following schools for their amazing turnout in this grassroots community effort:

  • Bayside STEAM/STEM (750 Postcards)
  • Foster City Elementary (400 Postcards)
  • LEAD Elementary (400 Postcards)
  • Meadow Heights (600 Postcards)
  • North Shoreview Montessori (450 Postcards)
  • San Mateo Park Elementary (1,100 Postcards)

If we missed you, we’re sorry.

Let us know and we’ll add you to the list.


It has been a sincere pleasure for us at working on this because we’ve gotten to meet so many of you, to see your commitment to our schools through your dedicated action, and to see your pictures and videos of your work on facebook and via email!

While’s focus is on better outcomes for special needs kids…. we care about ALL kids (as all kids are general education kids, even when they have special education services) and this has been an amazing opportunity to help ALL KIDS!

If you’d like to help do more to create better outcomes for all special needs kids… we thank you.

If you would like to learn more about or need our help to navigate the systems while we’re working to improve them… let us know.
